Hello all, I have been on the board for a couple years now, but haven't really asked many questions since my pool has been under construction for about a year and a half. We finally got the pool finished Monday of this week. 18000 Gallon Pool with 1HP pump a Hayward Sand filter. I think its a 24" model.
We got the liner installed Monday morning, and I had it 75% full by late monday evening. Monday night we had a huge storm and it filled the pool up the rest of the way with nasty water. I got the plumbing hooked up late tuesday night and poured in a couple gallons of bleach. I have been monitoring the the balance and slowing altering everything to get within spec. Pool pump and filter got new sand and has been running 24/7 since Tuesday night.
CYA ~20 (I've been slowing adding CYA via the sock method since Wednesday morning) I don't know exact amount yet because my Test kit only starts registering at 30
Anyway, the pool cleared up really good after 1 day, but its still somewhat cloudy and hasn't changed much since then. (By cloudy i mean, i can barely see the drains in the deep end (8ft) if I look REALLY hard.
My FC level last night after the sun went down was 2.0. This morning it was 1.8 so it doesn't seem like there is anything eating up the chlorine.
Is there something else I should be looking at? or am I just being impatient and there is still just dirt floating around in the pool?
